One story about this that made me laugh. I think Reggie Miller told this on an ESPN interview, but I'm not positive.
About an hour after the game, Ron Artest was sitting next to him in the locker room and genuinely asked, "Do you think we're gonna get in trouble?"
After everyone calmed down, Artest asked Jackson if he thought that the players would get in trouble. Jackson responded, "Are you serious? Trouble? Ron, we'll be lucky if we have a freaking job." The conversation convinced an amazed Jackson and Pollard that Artest "wasn't in his right mind, to ask that question".
